HOUSTON (AP) - Former Minnesota Timberwolves forward Eddie Griffin died last week when his sport utility vehicle collided with a freight train in a fiery crash, the Harris County medical examiner's office said Tuesday.

Wow. I didn't know that. That's a shock. I wonder if alacohol was involved.
The Devil whispered in the Viking's ear, "There's a storm coming." The Viking replied, "I am the storm." ‪#‎SKOL2017 #BringitHome‬

Sounds like "suicide by train" to me. From what I hear he went around (or through) a crossing signal and into the middle of a moving freight train.

RIP Eddie G, even though his time was short in Minnesota I think we all feel a connection to any players that have been a part of our lives.
